Thanks for the offer.  (I already use Prometheus heavily at work, but
other DSA members have less or no experience with it.)

Yes, this is great to see, especially with the v2 support out.  Do you
have any plans for packaging something like Weave Cortex which offers a
more long-term storage than Prometheus itself?

The Prometheus UI is fine for debugging queries and such, but it's far
away from Grafana when used interactively.  I'd be very happy if we
managed to get a newer version into Debian.
